11/6/77 - sorry I had it in the title & deleted. What a maroon.

Entire show kicks ass, but this is far and away my favorite Truckin' - Deadicated to our buddy Doug, who provided many nice sources for us over the years.

Truck drivers don't get enough credit. Without them we would not have been standing on line for Warlocks tickets. Union contract for work leaked the show dates and location. Thanks fellas.

'This show possesses the atmospheric highs and the abyssmal lows that often accompnay the Grateful Dead listening experience. The lows are moments of real sloppy playing and probably the absolute worst Scarlet>Fire of the period...However, the Dead more than make-up for the dogs with a positively huge Truckin'...Samson and Delilah. Jack Straw, NFA and Half Step are all given the full treatment ala '77. Nice overall quality, the sloppiness and some of the real throwaways keep this one from being mentioned as one of the best '77 shows and thus not a 5 star rating. That being said, check it out for sho'

OK. I just did the Scarlet>Fire again, and other than Keith being out of tune or off key kind of brutally I thought Jer-man carried it pretty well.

I'm curious, too. Obviously after a show, and it looks like there are plastic bottles on the ground.....when did those start being used? late 70's?

[EDIT] the photo looks to be from June 12, 1987. They didn't play Truckin that day so that isn't the version, but it couldn't really be anyway since 'best ever' and 1987 don't really go together!

I agree that this Truckin is one of the best, makes up for their worst Scarlet>Fire...

Great Truckin indeed and 11/6/77 also features the #1 greatest of them all HALF STEP.

(I will get dissent from proponents of 5/7/77 and 9/3/77, both of which are excellent, but neither of which climbs to the heights of 11/6/77.)

this might be like the best H2H debate...09-03 and 11-06 are neck and neck in my book, with 05-07 a notch and a half below...

Those three you mention were always my favorite three as well, but then I heard this version:

http://archive.org/details/gd1972-12-11.sbd.gems.107885.flac16

and I now have a strong new contender for the favorite (#1) spot. Doesn't 'soar' like that 77 stuff, but it's a beauty nonetheless...

the 72 has decidedly better Bobby tone. In fact, his tone from 72 thru 74 is just incredible to my ears.

and yeah, thanks truckers!

Here is a punchy 72' version with a spirited Jerry vocal,the end jam starts at about 6:00 and is regrettably shorter (about 1;30) than the 11/12 version,but it is potent.

10/27/72 has got some Focussed Jerry blues jams almost hits a Nobody's there it sounds like. Not sure I have ever heard as much sustained clapping. It is like the tune is walking on Cheetos. Very cool effect. Goes into Other one fades and then picks up again in 1/2 step which Jerry totally soars on at the end. Dew here is awesome. My source on this one changes to a board in time for Tomorrow is Forever. I guess don't look a gift horse in the mouth - but that is kind of a cruel twist.

That's a good point about the clapping,i bailed at 45 seconds and they were still going,it generally fades out shortly after the vocal starts.I liked this show more for the song portion than the jam stuff.It has good versions of GSET,Ramble on Rose,Sugar Mag and Tomorrow is Forever.The sound quality is what it is,like you mentioned,I am always happy we have what we have.

ENGLISHTOWN! May 77 is overhyped and 11-06 is good... but the jam at the beginning of the coda in the Englishtown version is unmatched.

That is a great version and show, and there was a new upload of (I think) a new source?

Perhaps, I am being pedestrian, but I've always liked the one from the original Europe '72 album (and, of course, the tunes that followed.)

Side five 14."Truckin'" (Garcia, Hunter, Lesh, and Weir) – 13:08
15."Epilogue" (Garcia, Donna Jean Godchaux, Keith Godchaux, Bill Kreutzmann, Lesh, McKernan, and Weir) – 4:33
Side six 16."Prelude" (Garcia, Donna Jean Godchaux, Keith Godchaux, Kreutzmann, Lesh, McKernan, and Weir) – 8:08
17."(Walk Me Out in the) Morning Dew" (Bonnie Dobson and Tim Rose) – 10:35


Enjoy,
